I figured it was about time for me to jump on the thankfulness bandwagon. I have been blessed so beyond measure it is ridiculous! It’s time to share.
Day 1: I am thankful there is a God. That God created the Earth, and sent His son into it to save us. I am thankful that at the age of 17 I began a relationship with Him. I am thankful that He alone is my Hope my Salvation and the one I can trust in. I am thankful he has given my life purpose and has a plan for my life.
Day 2: I am thankful for my family. I am blessed with such a loving and wonderful group of people. I am thankful for my mom. She is a great supporter, encourager, servant, listener, and friend. I am thankful for my brother and the man he is becoming. I am thankful for a dad that fixes things. I am thankful for all of my Aunts, Uncles, Cousins. I am thankful for my family, both blood and adopted. 🙂
Day 3: I am thankful for times of rest. Times to set back and relax and enjoy time alone, or with friends, or cleaning. Time to go out and enjoy God’s creation. Time to slow down and not be in a hurry.
